    Who Hasn't?

    Everyone got the "I love you" at least once in their lives...The only problem with the world right now is you need actions too so you can tell if they're real. "I love you" is just thrown around like trash these days. I wish people would think twice before saying those three...

    These words were once my reason

    for waking up every morning when before I ever heard them I would just Lay there in bed waiting for dawn to come. Waiting for the night to come. And repeat all over again. These 3 little words, can mean so much or they can mean nothing. Thankfully they meant something to me and...

    How Easy It Is to Say ...

    It's very easy to say "I love you" but it is potentially loaded with so much baggage that we often avoid saying it.  How refreshing it is to hear from a man who is not afraid to use those words, who knows that by admitting his love, he is not giving something of...

    Just Words

    I have been told I love you by a number of men. I have never truly felt loved until now. Words are easily spoken, but feeling them is something totally different. Some men say I love you just to get what they want. I've been there many times before. It's hard to know if and...

    By so many ex-boyfriends.

    Family members who I really doubt. Honestly the only people I believe it was true from are: My boyfriend, mom, aunt, 4 cousins, & best friend.

    I Want to Know What Love Is.

    I have heard the words "I love you" many times in my life.  I've heard it from my parents, grandparents, nieces, nephews, lovers, and even men who simply wanted to spend a night in my panties.  I have doubted at times that all of these persons truly loved me...

    Many Times By Many People...

    I love you is probably one of the most comforting things a person can hear... to know that someone feels for you, cares for you, is invested in you... that in itself brings a smile to my face... my family has always been very showy in terms of saying I love you and hugging... and...

    Life. The world. I see

    so much lies, and fakes. Once you see things, figure out where they come from, for what. You begins to see lies everywhere. They don't care about you. Your just like a cow to them. Used like cattle. And in the end, they have used you from the beginning. Free your self.

    I Have Been Told "i Love You"

    I have been told "I love you," by many different kinds of people. There were those that would say it and I would often find myself questioning if they ever really did or said it because "it just seemed like the thing to do." I've had family members say after  they've...

    Sweet Whispers

    i have been told I love you so many times..before going to sleep and as I open my eyes. I may love to hear it but need more than that. Words are something, doing it is another thing. I need more than sweet whispers to my ears.

    I've been with him for a few months now,

    and he means so much to me :) he tells me all the time that he loves me, and I've told him that I love him too. He's one of my closest friends as well as my boyfriend, and although it's really hard only seeing him on average once a month, it's all worth it!

    A Foreign Phrase

    Growing up my family was very cold. Wait a minute, "Was" and "Still are" would be more like it. I remember the first time I heard the words, "I love you." It was on television. It was like a foreign phrase, a foreign lifestyle. I suppose it was there that I learned what family...

    And I've Told Others I Love Them.

    It's not always easy for me to say. It takes some time for me to feel it enough to say it. I don't like throwing it around. But I say it daily to my mom. I say it daily to my significant other. I say it daily to myself. And each one tells me the same.

    And So What?

    Even i heard it many times,it dosen't mean i believe that they trully love me, if you have problems in your life than you understand who loves you and who dosn't care about you. They dosen't need to tell you they show it with their deeds. This is true love for me.

    During my twenty-two years of life, I've been told "I love you." a few times. But I never felt any warmth or love behind those words. Love is something you feel, not hear.
